Lacoste 1927 Tribute collection

First introduced in autumn/winter 2011, Tribute celebrates the iconic years in Rene Lacoste’s illustrious career. Nicknamed ‘Le Crocodile’, Lacoste was tenacious on the court and scrupulous in his style, just like the brand is today.

This time around, Tribute celebrates the year 1927 with a range of shoes infused with the sporting elegance of that era. Using careful design and thoughtful detail, each shoe features seven stars on the tongue tab, which are used in reference to Rene’s grand slam victories.

The summer 2012 collection consists of four styles – the Byront Mid and Low, the Suzuka and the Castera.
